5:00 pm
her daughter pregnant. joining me now, the fact they came back in six hours what, does that say to you about the insanity defense in. >> it's to prove and utilize in virginia, especially in this face, the packs and investigation done by the police and that pretty much foreclosed the defense issue from the beginning. and the police investigation indicated she knew what she was doing w. that kind of police work, it's difficult irrespective of what the experts say. >> and light look at the sentencing phase which begun after the verdict was read n. this testimony at the sentencing, her father and mother of angelynn testified that the father said she was a gift and no matter what, she would brighten your day. no parents should have to lose their kids under any circumstances. i don't believe for a second any parent should bury their
5:01 pm
child. he was followed by the defendant's daughter and mother. we can't have her anymore. we can't eat breakfast with her or go to the park with her or play. it's hard for us to go to her room. she'll never be able to start kindergarten. i can't teach her how to put makeup o. we can't teach her how to drive. she won't have those milestones, she won't grow up. now, what does that say to the jury as they weigh their sentencing decision now? >> that shows the jury the impact in very few words what is going to be for a lifetime on this mother and father and the family. the death of a child is a tragedy and there is no winner irrespective of what the sentence is in this case. the jurors are going to fobs on their own experiences and what rit's like to have their own children and grandchildren and what it could be like to lose one of them. in terms of determining the
5:02 pm
appropriate sanction for this sort of conduct. i would not expect there to be a lot of time ecpended in the decision -- exended in the decision. i think most have discussed this about the decision of guilt first-degree murder is a major penalty. >> what we're talking about is a potential life sentence or as little as 20 years and arguing for a life sentence, the commonwealth attorney said that she was tossd into space like a piece of trash for selfish reasons. and that is the one of the part of it. the deputy defendant said she feels -- it may not have risen to the level of ensanity in your mind, but she did have mental illness. will that factor in? this is a 51-year-old woman who had mental health issues and how will that weigh in on the decision of between years oner life? >> reporter: it didn't factor
5:03 pm
in on the innocence or guilt phase. the prosecutor and public defendant did a fine job on that phase of the case. the sentencing phase was truncated in terms of witnesses and that took place in a half hour or so of the the jurors will rely upon the mental health component and the lack of records. i didn't see any evidence of remorse. what happens in the courtroom and what the jury sees is what they decide. >> hard to tell what the jury will come back with. thank you very much, i appreciate you joining us and this is a sentencing phase right now, de la rosa could get between 20 years to life in prison and that would be a life sentence. shape back to you. >> sherri ly -- shawn, back to you. >> sherri ly, thank you. and now to a developing story in the district.

5:05 pm
the 99% and earlier today, we talked to some folks about why that were here and this is what they have to say. >> i'm an unemployed superhero and i'm here to make the point the education crisscrossis and debt crisis are as important as all the things people are discussing here and we're enslaving the next generation with a lifetime of crippling debt and we need to liberate them and give them good meaningful jobs to use their youth, passion, and energy. >> i'm here to protest the war in afghanistan among other things and my son joined the army in january and started investigating the reasons why we're there and bombing six different countries, started looking into that and that scared me. >> and coming in this morning on the metro you hear the recordings going off and i think it's good to use their own advice. i am doing what janet
5:06 pm
napolitano would have wanted of me. and i see some construction going on and i'm going to say something. >> reporter: after they left the chamber of commerce, they came back here to freedom plaza and many of them have dispersed since and a few hundred remain in the plaza. we have not seen any civil desobedience. and after freedom plaza, they were on the move and their second destination of the day? the chamber of commerce in northwest. that is where matt ackland is live with the rest of the story. matt? >> reporter: when you compare this protest to other protests we have seen in the district of columbia the last few years, this is really pretty small. a couple of hundred protestors and boy that were vocal. they left freedom plaza and went behind the white house behind me and to the chamber of commerce. i want to get you video there. in front of the chamber of commerce, you can see a big sign. it says jobs. the problem is that the protestors say the chamber of commerce is not doing enough to
5:07 pm
help americans find jobs and as the protestors blocked off eighth street, they chanted where are the jobs and referred to the chamber of commerce as a commerce of corporate hires and there were several speeches from those upset about the economy and the jobs available formers. >> i work at a minimum wage job in tennessee for $7.45 an hour and i don't trust my future is secure in the middle class. this chamber does not represent small businesses. it does not represent our families. >> i want to spoke on behalf of the soldiers who put their lives on the line to give their blood and sweat and bravery to this country and then they come back to miserable conditions. they don't get the proper benefits they deserve, they don't get the mental health or medical care and don't get the civilian jobs toent great back

melanie alnwick has more. >> reporter: you know one of the most interesting things that i have obsend was here. people pulling out their iphones to take pictures here and a lot of people were talking about how many things they use every day that steve jobs was responsible for creating and i wanted to know how the contemporaries were thinking and feeling today, so i paid a visit to ted leonces, who is, we know as the opener of the washington capitals and an aol executive who worked with steve jobs. now, an ipod with two words: thank you. small tributes left outside of apple stores in memory of the big way steve jobs touched so many lives. >> you have a computer in your hand everywhere you go. it's -- he's brought us closer to star trek. people have. >> i think that he represented a lot of what my generation
5:11 pm
hopes even big business can achieve. and in a creative and responsible way. >> reporter: steve jobs makes computers accessible, fun, and easy to use and continued to innovate. not just creating amazing products but revolutionizing the industry's connected to them. and with gijoy towns and the. >> i joy pod the music was easier than ever toba -- buy, listen to and to share. >> the ipod the ipad, the iphone, apple tv they're just like oxygen for so many people. you just live your life with them. >> reporter: washington capitals opener began his career in the computer -- owner began his career in the computer industry about the time steve job and his company created the mcintosh personal computer and worked together on several projects over the years. >> he was a very, very driven,
5:12 pm
focused, passionate person and made you do things that, frankly, you didn't think were possible. >> when jobs was pushed out of his own company in 1985, he went on to pixar studios and sent digital any make to a new level and returned to apple in 1996, launched the imac in 1998 and the rest they say s history. >> that he made something really complex. very simple and populous and made something that was ugly and nerdy beautiful and cool. and he did it well, relentlessness that made him a legend you know and we really lost a, you know once-in-a- generation kind of guy. >> reporter: among the thoughts of ted leonces, he said the loss of steve jobs to the business world and the world of
5:13 pm
consumer products is very similar to what the music world went through when john lennon died. he also said that steve jobs created a company that represents the best of america. and he was also a pretty good guy. shawn? >> indeed. he left more than a day at the universe. thank you. the conrad murray trial captured the attention of the country. we're following today's courtroom twists and turns live in los angeles coming up next. and also tonight, the search is on for this missing 10 month ole baby stolen from her home in the middle of the night. tonight, her parents are making an emotional plea. their message is next. e is next.
5:14 pm
5:15 pm
5:16 pm
>> it was a tense day in court today for the los angeles county coroner who investigated michael jackson's death as the prosecution used her to set the scene with photos. the defense poked holes in her decision during the investigation. >> would you agree with me that you made substantial number of mistakes in your investigation of this case. >> no. >> would you agree with me if you don't take notes and don't keep your notes that is bad having, that is bad -- bad investigation, bad investigative work. would you agree? >> no. >> fox's hal eisner is live in los angeles with more on what went on in court. thank you for being with us again. priority it and start with the with the cross-examination.
5:17 pm
we know the defense is trying to prove that michael jackson gave him the fatal dose of propofol. how would mistakes to the coroner be linked to the argument? >> i think you could break this into two different things. first of all, mistakes and what drug bottle she may have had or anything like that. certainly could speak to any testimony down the road from experts with regard to -- some issues at hand with regard to his death. when does the issue of reasonable doubt start to play into the mind of jurors? for a defense attorney, it could be on day one if they can start to create reasonable doubt. this is day 8 and they haven't had many people to attack relentlessly as the coroner today. he went after her pictures for instance, she reported early on there was a bottle of propofol
5:18 pm
in a saline bag with a slit in it and that is how the bottle got inside. the picture shows the bottle on top of the bag sitting on it. why didn't she take the picture as it was opposed to how she wanted to frame it up. latex gloves, he pulled out a picture of the room and said i don't see any gloves here, do you? she said that picture doesn't work. how about this one? and the latex gloves were on a chair. so, you know, going after details like that, the big question is will any of that register in the juror'smond and create some doubt about the coroner's investigation and whether it was sloppy enough to not have proved the prosecution case. >> who is on the stand right now? >> right now is a coroner's toxicologist. he has been talking about the autopsy of michael jackson and they have been going through
5:19 pm
all of the different things they found in his stomach and other body parts and his plead. they talked about the lido cape the propofol, 2.6 micrograms in his blood and not exactly sure, laura, how much that is and remember, this stuff does involve after it gets into the system and it's not known to me how much that is relatively speaking. >> back to the coroner now. did you see the faces of the jurors and can you stage any reaction to them from some of the testimony heard today? >> the fact of the matter is that we're watching from a media center about three floors above where the courtroom is. our credentials are being used by our network. it's hard for me to answer a question like. that i can't see them and the cameras in the courtroom. you know, in talking with my colleagues, they have been really, you know, just tuned in to the testimony.
5:20 pm
i would think that they have been like us, taking notes. some of this stuff is scientific. and when you get a defense attorney on the attack and tries to discredit somebody, that gets your attention. >> and any idea who might be on that stand tomorrow in. >> no. there was a point here a few days ago where the judge was not going let the prosecution let us know who is coming up. little leaks at the end of the day. right now, we don't know. >> hal eisner as always, thank you very much for being with us. appreciate it. in and we want to let you know you can -- . >> and we want to let you know you can stay on top of the trial. the app streams live video from the courtroom and provides expert analysis and commentary. for more you can check out www.myfoxdc.com. we're following breaking

5:35 pm
they're too tight. the man of them are more forgiving than the regular pancreatic cancers and there is a reasonable prognosis for them to see the 80 or 90% survival for them and for some of the eyelet cell tumors, they can be aggressive too and might be slow growing than the common kinds of cancers but they're not survivable and that is probably the kind that steve jobs h. >> i understand that 80 to 90% survival rates is for five years, correct? >> that's right. >> and when it comes back does that mean it comes back in a aggressive form when it comes back and the prognosis is poor, the case of steve jobs? >> it can number that manner and they spread early for the eyelet jell cell tulors. they can and do spread early to the liver and other places. it's they're more slow growing
